Thoughts in the shape of words.

Walking Tall

Lying in bed all day
Maybe theres something going on
So I try to find my black coat
It’s not top notch but it’s okay

Staring out the window now
The cars are just rolling by
So many people going somewhere
Some break the law some their vows

How long can you live with a lie
A lie that’s tearing you apart.
You can pretend and deceive
But you’re just deceived in your heart

I want more worlds to explore
I don’t want to be trapped
I’m walking out of that door
Hoping for some luck

I’m walking tall tonight
Through many tainted streets
In order to feel alive somehow
To get that feeling back in my gut
I’m no fool all right
I’m walking tall tonight

I hear and I see
Trouble all around the world
And many worries on my mind
Makes it so hard too feel

I feel for the ones
Those who never chase their dreams
The ones who struggle for a meal
Those constantly on the run

This is not easy to bear
Upon a single pair of shoulders
And some people just don’t care
They just do what their parents told ’em

I’ll never be one for fortunes of gold
What good shall it do for my mind
I’ve heard many stories told
And I’m gonna find my time

I’m walking tall tonight
Through many tainted streets
In order to feel alive somehow
To get that feeling back in my gut
I’m no fool all right
I’m walking tall tonight

Losing Control

When I woke up this morning
I was feeling all right
But there was this yearning
I had so many doubts

It’s so very hard for me
To sit down and focus my mind
So very hard to see
Beyond false words unkind

Well you know sometimes I get lost in the clouds every day
But I can’t go there today because you know there’s a price you pay


For losing control
I’d always been told
That
You’re not made for that role

Still I’m losing control
As my life unfolds
I’m losing control

Well I went out for a walk
A fresh view of the world
But all I hear is the same old talk
And it’s getting pretty old

You know I hear all your words
They’re just whispers of Insanity
When I hear all your words
I wish I’d been exempt from gravity

Well you know sometimes I get lost in the clouds every day
You can’t tell me what to do and you can’t tell me what to say

I’m losing control
I’d always been told
That
You’re not made for that role

Still I’m losing control
As my life unfolds
I’m losing control

Don’t Let Her Go

Into my life you came
Like a storm changed it up
In you I saw the answers
That I could not think of
By myself for a reason
I was held in a prison

I saw your face
Over a cup of tea
We’re not that close
But I can feel
The tension in the air
When my company you share

She’s more than I could dream of
I’m hiding my feelings you know
When my inner voice keeps telling me
Not to let her go
Don’t let her go
Never let her go
Oh you feel for her so
Don’t let her go

I see you wherever I go
Wherever I steer
But are there words
I never get to hear
What hides within your mind
I hope for nothing unkind

As this painting
Is just being started
I hope our paths
Will not be parted
Into separate fates
Where feelings escape

She’s more than I could dream of
I’m hiding my feelings you know
When my inner voice keeps telling me
Not to let her go
Don’t let her go
Never let her go
Oh you feel for her so
Don’t let her go

I am left here
With emotional hunger
As you leave my house
I never stop to wonder
When I’ll see you again
I wonder my friend

There’s no way to tell you
What I need to say
There’s that sensitive line
I can’t cross anyway
‘Cause I need you close
I’m a fool for you I suppose

She’s more than I could dream of
I’m hiding my feelings you know
When my inner voice keeps telling me
Not to let her go
Don’t let her go
Never let her go
Oh you feel for her so
Don’t let her go

In The Spiders Web

In the spiders web
Is where we’re stuck
Unable to move
Now we’re out of luck

We can’t move a muscle
Unable to take a step
This is where we’re stuck
In the spiders web

They came with their artillery first
When violence were their solution
Now they wear their sharp suits
But still with the same delusion

You can fool an entire country
With made up numbers and lies
And I tell you it’s not funny
When it’s an eye for an eye

In the spiders web
Is where we’re stuck
Unable to move
Now we’re out of luck

We can’t move a muscle
Unable to take a step
This is where we’re stuck
In the spiders web

You may have traveled a long way
Searched in flow, searched in ebb
Then you’re first to be sent away
Or placed right into the web

But we must always remember
And we must never forget
Everyone can rise together
To sweep away those threats

In the spiders web
Is where we’re stuck
Unable to move
Now we’re out of luck

We can’t move a muscle
Unable to take a step
This is where we’re stuck
In the spiders web
